Oh No! our first Snow!

The snow didn't amount to much Thank Goodness!, Just a soft covering which sent me searching through my archives to find this poem written by me a few years ago. Its a quilting poem.

Needles of pine quilt a soft warm blanket using

hushed hues of faded browns and yawning yellows
as Autumn prepares its winter bed

Northern vagabonds of wind and snow
whistle a warning lullaby of winter's approach
and Autumn falls asleep upon a soft white pillow

Winter stay away, you are not welcome here!

Your yard looks lovely under its soft warm blanket. This snow will melt with the first warming sun.

Love the 'yawning yellows' - nice! Hope that your snow does melt away although it looks pretty in your photo.
